Hitchcock Feeling Blue

With Gary Agnew being named the "interm" head coach of the Blue Jackets, speculation is flying that Ken Hitchcock could be the next full time head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Hitch has a great relationship with Adam Foote, and many inside the Columbus Blue Jacket's organization feel that Hitchcock would be able to get the most out of Columbus' young talent. While I can confirm that the Blue Jackets have not asked for permission from the Flyers to speak with Hitch, that request is likely only days away.

The Sens lost another one last night, and currently sit in a tie for 24th in the entire NHL with just 13 points. I'll quickly point out the Leafs currently fifth in the league with 25 points...but enough of that. A shakeup is needed in Ottawa, but the question is, what? Their goaltending troubles are un-fixable at this time as Gerber is untradeable. Redden is hurt and the entire team is underachieving. The Sens cannot afford to bring in any player to fix this team unless one of their top players are dealt. Is it time for Alfredsson to be traded? A lot of questions in Ottawa right now, not so many answers.

Colorado, another underachieving team, is working hard to make something happen. While one source has them looking at Forsberg, I've also heard they've had serious talks with Tampa Bay involving one of their top three forwards. Watch Colorado, they're really looking to make a deal
